Train Card

Hi All,

How are you doing... I am so sorry for being little inactive now a days... Trying hard to catch up with everyone on regular basis... I have so many projects to share.. Will try to cover up as much as possible..
Today I wanna share a train card I made recently.. It's for the same little boy for whom I made this Jungle Birthday card.. But this time Its from his grand parents. After seeing the Jungle card given by my friend, they ordered one from their side... Frankly speaking, making cards for children is really a difficult job. But I really loved Tejal's this train card and so wanna try it. So this was an opportunity for me. Thanks Tejal for the inspiration! :)

Here it is! The engine at the front... All the parts of the train is hand drawn n cut.. I used 3-D silver glittery stars to make smoke clouds...


 and the bogies.. The child's name was Hani so I made 4 bogies filled with toys!...


The toys are nothing but the tabs to pull out the tags.. These were message tags when grand parents wrote the messages for their grandson... and I made a matching envelope to go with the card...


A lot of things has gone into making it.. so here is the list.

CS: Blue-Loca buy, White - Fabriano Brustro
PP: Blue Breeze Paper pack from Imagination's online, EP papers from different paper packs
Stars, Sentiments, Alphabets: Itsy Bitsy
3-D embellishment stickers: Local buy
